March 13th 2012 will mark 5 years since my wife, Meg, was diagnosed with chondrosarcoma bone cancer. It was a hard day. She had been having issues with her right leg falling asleep and in lot of pain for a full year. We didn't have insurance at the time, so she down-played to the rest of us how much discomfort she was really in, knowing how expensive it would have been to get it looked at.
When the severity of her ailments began to interfere with life and become almost unbearable, we paid for a bone scan of her whole body and a CT scan which showed a large mass protruding from her hip nearly touching her heart. We had a difficult time finding a doctor who would talk to us for lack of insurance, so we found ourselves knocking on the door of Huntsman Cancer Institute. We found Dr. Randall who, upon reviewing her scans, told us that she had a malignant tumor, that it was threatening her life, and it needed to be removed right away. He wrote a “certificate of need” so he could operate on Meg to save her life; otherwise, her case would have had to be brought before their board of directors and voted on to be approved. That process would have taken longer than Meg had time to give.
Within two weeks, Meg was in surgery. It was a long, laborious surgery. For nearly a month, Meg remained in the hospital and rehabilitation recovering. Since then, Meg has pushed beyond what most would think possible to battle this hideous disease. She has undergone dozens of surgeries, two failed attempts at chemotherapy, and new experimental procedures. Despite all this, her tumor's continue to grow and spread. Her cancer has metastasized to her soft tissue. Doctors have removed tumor's from her liver, the surface of her kidney's, her spine, and everywhere within her abdomen and pelvis area.
July of 2011, we were told a cluster of tumor's are intermingled with blood vessels, and major arteries supplying her right leg with blood. The the only option we have is a surgery that would take more than half of her pelvic bone, her entire right leg, and the relocation of her spine to attach to the left part of her hip. They cannot remove the tumor without removing 1/4 of her body. If surviving the surgery, she would be recovering for years, and bed ridden the rest of her life as there would be no bone to affix a prosthesis to. This surgery would give no guarantee's the cancer would even be gone. She's decided against the surgery for the purpose of being a Mom for her girls right now when they need her most.
Through all of this, Meg has never given up. She keeps her two young daughters focused in the forefront of her mind and this is her motivation. Being a mom and wife is what she lives for, literally!
Help us help Meg!! Spread the word!
